Words and Music by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe

From the Broadway musical "My Fair Lady"

I'm gettin' married in the morning
Ding dong the bells are gonna chime
Pull out the stopper, let's have a whopper
But get me to the church on time

I gotta be there in the morning
Spruced up and looking in my prime
Girls, come and kiss me, show how you'll miss me
But get me to the church on time

If I am dancing, roll up the floor
If I am whistling, whisk me out the door, for

I'm gettin' married in the morning
Ding dong the bells are gonna chime
Kick up a rumpus but don't lose your compass
And get me to the church, get me to the church
For Pete's sake, get me to the church on time
